TURNTABLE TUESDAY - Mark Allan Atwood

I know I'm running behind today. I've been blessed with a head cold and scratchy throat and just don't feel up to working. But I can't let this day go by without introducing you to one of my favorite men in Texas music.


Mark Allan Atwood is a compassionate, soulful singer/ songwriter. And like most of us who would give the shirt of our backs, it's been known to bite him in the butt here and there. But one thing never changes - his dedication to the people in both his personal and professional life. Often those lines are blurred, as they should be when you have to count on both teams to get you through the incredible journey of an artist's life.
Whether he's hitting the road with his band, Brimstone, or performing solo (where you're apt to see his girlfriend/ manager Candice Wagner in the audience) Mark pours everything into each strum of his guitar, every lyric that passes his lips. There is a reason he is the TMA2013 Male Vocalist of the Year, recipient of the My Texas Award 2012 and Rising Star Award 2010.


His current album, Burned at the Crossroads, delivers twelve tracks of soulful, hippie, honky tonk ballads and dance tunes sure to please anyone who takes the time to listen.  I had a problem picking just one track for Turntable Tuesday. But after listening to all the tracks, I'm going with GHOST. A haunting ballad and a fitting tribute to troubadours past, GHOST tells about the feeling of being surrounded by them as he performs. You can hear the song on his website or better yet, clicking on the album title will take you directly to the BUY link where you can order the full CD and enjoy them anywhere. Whether you need something to dance to or snuggle with your best someone, Burned at the Crossroads belongs in your CD collection.

Mark has several gigs coming up:
Nov 6 - Poodie's Hilltop - Spicewood - 8 p.m.
Nov. 15 - Filthy McNasty's - Fort Worth - 9 p.m.
Nov. 19 - Floyd's Cajun Seafood and Texas Steakhouse - Pearland - 6:30 p.m.
Nov. 21 - Back Forty Smokehouse - North Richland Hills - 7 p.m.

Go check him out. You'll be glad you did!
Country Blessings

OUT OF THE CHUTE - Off line and why

Hey all

Just spent a fun-packed weekend in Nashville with my granddaughters. I have ZILCH prepared for this week. But more importantly, NanoWriMo began on Friday and I'm already behind.

What's NanoWriMo you ask? Officially - National Novel Writing Month. Where thousands of us band together in support of one common goal - for each of us to write a new novel from scratch - totaling 50,000 words or more in 30 days.

The novella I wrote in 18 days last year is under contract with Boroughs Publishing Grp. Somewhere Down the Line is a music-based story about a journalist finding love with an entertainer she met twenty years ago. I love second chance at love kind of stories.

This year I'm sticking with what I know - the music business. Although Heart On The Line isn't about the music business, the hero is a country music entertainer - part of a trio called Current River. This time, the hero's granny leaves everything to him - on one condition. He must properly court and marry his childhood friend within one year. Oh yeah, the heroine is also road assistant for the group. Throw in an older brother who thinks everything should belong to him and an ex-wife claiming she's entitled to a percentage of everything he acquires and you have a novella full of changes to match any Ohio river current.

I hope to have a turntable for you tomorrow. So stay tuned!
Country Blessings!
